7:01 am
unlikely source. and good morning, america. from ground zero on this weekend where america remembers, we are also getting a fresh dose of the fear that we first tasted at this very site nearly a decade ago. >> that's right, dan. security is extra tight throughout new york and washington, d.c., with checkpoints and searches tying up traffic all day friday, into the night last night and this morning. now, here's what we know, there is a credible, though unconfirmed report, of three men planning a car or truck bombing in new york or washington on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. officials telling abc news that this is a real plot. it's a real plan and an intent to go forward with is it. we'll go to brian ross with more.
7:02 am
>> anks, bianna, but first, i want to give you a quick tour. for so long, this place sat empty. this morning, it is a place transformed. take a look at the brand-new 9/11 memorial. it's built right into the footprints of the towers. massive waterfalls, two of the largest man-made waterfallsls o earth. and right next door, what will be america's tallest skyscraper, at a rate of one story per day. it is quite a thing to behold. bianna, we're going to take you up into the tower and also up into the memorial coming up. >> quite an inspiration, dan. but we do begin with that terror threat, president obama addressed the threat for the first time in his weekly address this morning. >> make no mistake, they will keep trying to hit its again. but as we're showing again this weekend, we remain vigilant, we're doing everything in our power to protect our people.
7:03 am
no matter what comes in our way, as a resilient nation, we will carry on. >> let's get the very latest from the possible al qaeda plot. brian ross is with us. brian, authorities seem to be narrowing down the details of the suspect and the time line. >> that's right, bianna, officials tell abc news, they believe they have identified the name of at least one of those three suspects. they believe all three suspects traveled to the pakistan/afghanistan region sometime during the summer, spent about a month there, and then headed back to the u.s., arriving here on either august 30th or september 1st. it comes from an informant that is well known and trusted by the u.s. but the information is descscbed at best second hand. authorities say they have no real information and expect it to be real. >> reporter: throughout the night, new york city remained on
7:04 am
lockdown. checkpoints on all bridges and tunnels in and out of manhattan. >> there's police everywhere. there are blockades everywhere. >> reporter: acrosshe city, traffic gridlocked. >> as long as we've been flying over the city, this is the worst we've seen it. it is a nightmare. >> reporter: in the subways, popoce everywhere. police on high alert, working off very little information, some of it at best second hand. it's been a and from theic 72 hours as intelligence officials track down leads. it started wednesday in pakistan where officials say the cia first developed the information. three men, including at least one or maybe more american citizens had travelled to the u.s. in late august or early september from pakistan through dubai. assigned to attack new york or washington with a vehicle bomb on september 10th, 11th or 12th. officials call the source
7:05 am
credible. late wednesday night, the intelligence was relayed to washington and cia headquarters. early thursday at the white house, the president and vice president received the first of several briefings on the vehicle bomb threat. around 7:00 p.m., as the president has arrived to address congress, the fbi and cia were in high gear. >> you use all the resources that we have. people are working 24/7 on this issue. >> reporter: u.s. authorities believe that the three men likely arrived with nothing more than a suitcase full of clothes and an al qaeda vehicle for a bomb which would involve chemicals and components easily purchased here, bianna. >> brian, we're learning details as who the potential suspects are, any details as to what the targets have been? >> reporter: well, terrifics were washington or new york, apparently with ininstructions if they couldn't reach those two targets to do anything that would cause the most possible destruction over this weekend. >> brian, we appreciate your
7:06 am
report. meantime, intelligence officials are working around the clock to track down the three men suspected in the terror attacks. abc correspondent pierre thomas joins from us washington. pierre, they think they've identified at least one of these men. what is the next step? >> bianna, this is a very intense moment they're looking at a pool of people. they narrowed it down as brian said in august from a number of countries but there's a particular focus on dubai. when names are compared to intelligence files and officials are zeroing in on those who went to new york or washington. i'm also told that investigators are checking to see if any possible suspects rented weapons or vehicles or explosives. it could be a life and death situation. >> pierre, as you reported in the past, intelligence officials have unfolded many possible threats leading up to this weekend's anniversary.
7:07 am
but it appears that authorities are taking this one more seriously. are they? and why? >> look, bianna, even though the threat is not confirmed to be a real plot, my sources are telling me, until they come to a definitive answer, they have to pull out all the stops. that's why you see such a dramatic force here in washingtgt and new york. and also possible other threats. so this is one of the most intense nerve-racking periods that we've seen in quite some time. and those nerves an fears aren't just for today and tomorrow, the tenth anniversary of 9/11. those fears for next week. >> we appreciate you reporting. back to dan at ground zero, dan, as we've heard from pierre, you can see that the officials and police have ramped up all over, throughout the city. >> throughout the city. as pierre said, nerve-racking. i want to bring in the special
7:08 am
agent and he's now here at ground zero. they're talking about a credible threat, what exactly does that mean? >> credible mean, the search of information, whether human or plotted, theyook at the facts, they think this is credible but by no means does this mean it's real. and that's the problem because we've got a single source. and that's the big question that we're trying to answer is it's real. >> do you think the police are overreacting? >> no, they're not overreacting. once they've gone over this, they've announced this, they are in a position to deter this threat. we know that washington, d.c. say prime target, we know that new york is a prime target, they have no choice but to react. the number one thing is to protect the public and this is what they're doing. >> i look a subway ride with mayor mike bloomberg, he was talking about the need for
7:09 am
vigilance, see something say something has become a cliche, but what do you think? >> it's 52 homegrown terror tacks, 52. the majority of those have been in the last two years when those plots have been thwarted, it's because the public, somebody has seen something. this is ourr vanguard, this is the public, this is the dynamic. say something. >> thank yous for coming in. >> thank you. we're going to take a closer look at this place behind us, ground zero. there will, of course, be a ceremony here tomorrow,s that has been every year since the attacks. all the families were invited also with president obama and president bush. take a look at what the families will now be seeing, for nearly a decade, while this place has been considered halalwed ground, it has actually been just a h he
7:10 am
in the ground. while politicians and victims' families thought there were meaningless ribbon-cutting ceremonies that went nowhere. this morning, though, that has changed dramatically. >> reporter: ever since there was a pile of smoldering steel, americans have been drawn to ground zero. in the days after 9/11, i met people who came here from all over the country to see it for themselves. >> it's a bit of a -- >> my legs are shaking. you know. my legs are weak. being here. >> just all those people, you know, it's real tragic. >> reporter: for most of the intervening decade, ground zero has been a hole in the ground. now, however, that has all changed dramatically. inside the exact footprints of the twin towersrs two the larget man-made waterfalls on earth.
7:11 am
michael elrod designed it. >> when i see this, i just feel in my gut there was a tower here and there were people in that tower. >> absolutely, i wanted to make what was absent visible. it's an enormous void. you see it in your eyes, but you sense it. it feels like it opens up around you. >> reporter: the 2,991 names in each pool are carved out of specially treated bronze that will be kept warm to the touch in winter and cool in summer. right next door, the largest skyscraper in the western hemisphere is rising, it's called one world trade center. it will ultimately be 104 stories and symbolic 1776 feet. so the work hereever stops? >> never stops. >> reporter: so the workers don't have to go all the way down for lunch, they have a subway sandwich shop in a
7:12 am
shipping container that moves up as the building goes up. safety is a massive concern here, unlike the twin towers, this building will have a core made out of concrete that is seven times stronger than the concrete in a sidewalk. the elevator banks and the stairways, they are all within that concrete course. so, if, heaven forbid, something happened in an upper floor, people would be able to get out above and below. being here, you realize this is not just a construction site. >> we're sfin stories up. >> reporter: it is an attempt to retake the sky. and this entire 16-acre site once barren and now bustling is an attempt to strike a balance between rebuilding and remembering. t me show you one other new thing here. see that building between the memorial pools, the gleaming building? that is the new 9/11 museum which is going to open next
7:13 am
year. it has reminders of that day, the damaged fire trucks and the staircase which miraculously stayed intact, allowing so many to escape. in the little town of shanksville, pennsylvania, the families of the victims who died were taken on a memorial that is now in construction there. in washington, where 184 people died at the pentagon, there are now benches honoring each of the victims there. and abc news' john hendren is at the scene this morning. john, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, zan. a decade later, the scars on the pentagon have healed, though, if you look closely, you can still see the discoloration where the new limestone has been laid alongside the old. osama bin laden is dead, thanks to troops who report to commanders inside that building. but al qaeda lives on. that explains today'ss heightend security with the new terror
